Join our Artist in Residence for this workshop where each person will leave with a doll of their own creation. The dolls are made from recycled clothing and will include some machine and hand stitching and lots of open ended discussion about what matters to us in the year 2019.

Materials, notions, and stuffing for the dolls will be provided. You are also welcome to bring used clothing and scraps of your own (densely knit sweaters and printed cotton work really well).

These dolls pack a punch, and make great gifts for someone you wish to empower!
